Caption: Arthritic hands. The severely deformed hands of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis, turning the pages of a book. The fingers are abnormally bent because of damage to the knuckle joints, which are severely swollen. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the body's immune system attacks joint tissue, most often in the hands and feet. Affected joints become painful and inflamed, limiting movement. A variety of drugs may help to relieve symptoms or check the progress of the disease. Sufferers are usually affected for life and may need physiotherapy or occupational therapy.
